28mm The Assault Group – Ottoman Azabs (Azaps)

Ottoman Azabs (Azaps)

More reinforcements for the (large) Ottoman Army.. again some Azaps, this time by The Assault Group.
Paint this so irregular units is time killer, and more if they are a mix of weapons as is the case, bows, muskets and pole arms, plus the command figures.
The Assault Group still produces more figures for the Azaps, so here isn’t the full range.
Flag is by Wargames Designs.

28mm The Assault Group – Ottoman Tufecis

Ottoman Tufecis

Tufecis were albanian and turkish light infantry musketeers in formed units with some training, often used as Skirmishers. The Assault Group provides a nice range for them, with uniforms clearly inspired in an Osprey’s illustrations, and i tried to follow color patterns too. So we really hope Osprey did a good job researching that illustration :). Not all the figures provided by TAG can be seen here, as they also have a horse holders pack not included here.
This kind of uniform should belong then to a late XVII century or XVIII, making them a bit of too modern for other elements of the army.

28mm The Assault Group – Ottoman Ordinance Artillery

Ottoman Ordinance

The Assault Group produces an specific ordinance gun for the Ottoman Army (S-XVI/XVII) with two crew options packs, both depicted below. Most of the figures of the crews, are wearing a similar outfit to Levent range, with some caps variation.

Ottoman artillery was famous for the size of its cannon, and their number, from the highly mobile anti-personnel Abus gun to the massive Great Turkish Bombard, so it’s a bit of pity only one medium gun type has been addressed by TAG to his large Ottoman range. Despite this, guns are very nice modeled, with an intricate decoration on barrels, making them a very nice piece.

Hopefully more artillery will come in the future.

28mm Warlord Games – Ottoman Janissary Kazan

Ottoman Janissary Kazan

The man with the spoon is far large than all the other in the Warlord range. It’s a pity they decided to depict so good extra figures for the army without do a good job on them. An over sized figure, and the other two looking so flat as all the Janissary range, seems they reused one time and another legs and torsos.
Last update in a few. Stay tuned, we are only in the middle of the Ottoman army.

28mm The Assault Group – Ottoman Levent.

28mm The Assault Group – Ottoman Levent.

There are not too much information about these guys, and the term Levent is also commonly used as Marine, but also as a sort of semi-professional auxiliary troops.
One of the Osprey books about the Ottoman Army, contains one illustration of these guys exactly as they are sculpted, so i follow as the color scheme. They looks to me as precursors of the lovely Zouave uniforms a couple of centuries later (Except the coat with shoulder’s pads.)
Flag is from Wargames Designs, re-printed to match the style of my own flags which i will use in the future.
All the figures are by The Assault Group. All of them nicely sculpted and without mold problems.
One extra halberd janissary has been converted to standard bearer.

28mm The Assault Group – Janissaries with Bow.

All the figures are by The Assault Group. All of them nicely sculpted and without mold problems.
Figures are by The Assault Group and Warlord Games. They have both different styles but once in group the match quite well. Warlord musket janissaries looks almost all the same pose, although they have some variations all of them are firing and in quite similar pose. Looks some flat in a front view. Any mold problem on them. The Assault Group guys have a lot more of pose variation, costume variation, not looking flat at all, but present a few mold problems or metal excess.

28mm Warlord Games – Janissaries with Halberd.

28mm Warlord Games – Janissaries with Halberd.

Last in this initial batch for the Ottoman army, are these Janissaries armed with halberds.
One more time we have all the figures sided the same, in quite similar poses, some of them a bit odd.
After have painted (except muskets, next in the pipeline) almost all the Warlord Janissaries range… i think they lost an opportunity to do something really good, making something just acceptable. The mix in the boxed set, prevent them of do enough poses for nothing, all the musket guys are firing, they all looks exactly the same, and overall, it happen to bows, archers and halberds.
Janissaries are one of the most beautiful topics to paint in Late Medieval or Renaissance era, and Warlord was unable to do a great job on them, as if they had hurry to launch them. When you have all the figures in hand, a lot of them seems to share legs. Ans almost all the army is looking to the same side.. and flat. A pity.
This is my 3rd Janissaries regiment, i opted this time by a light blue colour, the only MSP (Master Series Paints by Reaper) bottle i have. I love this paint, i should buy more. They have a matt finish that Vallejo haven’t. And it’s still in good shape after 3 years opening and closing the bottle.
I did some special decoration for officers, similar to the one done on Janissaries with Sword, but choosing a different pattern.

Guy on the right, showing a self print decal in the “skirt”.
Free-hand decoration on coats, by repeating a “three dots” pattern.

NCO also got a few of the “three dots” pattern.

28mm Warlord Games – Janissaries with Bow.

28mm Warlord Games – Janissaries with Bow.

Janissaries with Bow, Ottoman Turkish’s elites troop.
Bows, compared with Muskets, were a cheap and still quite efficient weapon in the time, so it was extensively used in the Ottoman army.
Warlord offer two different blisters for these guys, firing and advancing. As happened on the sword armed ones, figures are all sided the same way and looks some flat, overall group appearance looks like not much variation in the pose because this, and some odd poses, happen here too.

28mm Walord Games – Azabs (Azap).

28mm Walord Games – Azabs (Azap).

Azabs (Azaps) were an irregular volunteer infantry of the Ottoman empire, they were only paid during war times, so they mainly only existed during wars. As volunteers they were free to left the army at any time. they hadn’t any kind of train or uniformity, and commonly they were armed with swords and bows as Warlord has depicted, although in the time, wasn’t uncommon to see them armed with their own fire arms.
Warlord offers only one blister for this subject, with 4 different poses, and no specific command. So i used here Janissaries’ command figures (i swapped heads of NCOs by Gripping beast plastic arabs heads).
Irregular troops are the pain of the painter… you have to use many variations to depict this lack of uniformity. I chosen several main colours in groups of 2 or 3 figures per colour and then i painted 3 stripped single figures to give the group more diversity. Again a bit of special work have been done in the officer.
Opposite to Janissaries figures, these ones aren’t flat at all, they even seems to be wearing a sort of great coat, as in winter times.

28mm Warlord Games – Janissaries with Sword.

28mm Warlord Games – Janissaries with Sword.

Janissaries were a military elite during a few centuries in the Ottoman-Turkish empire who evolved from military to socio-cultural ambit of the Ottoman empire.
It’s a very interesting topic to research, they did an extensive use of the fire-arms, but as any other army of the era, other weapons were part of their corps. To start to learn more i suggest to take a look at wikipedia. They are usually considered as the first modern army.

Warlord have several options for these guys, but in consideration here, we have Janissaries armed with sword and shield, plus some command figures.
All the poses are mainly looking forward and sided… so once ranked the unit looks a bit ugly, they trends to look a bit flat. One of the poses, advancing, is terrible odd. A part of that, sculpture is good, mould are news, and you don’t have too much work cleaning metal from figures. No metal excess, no many mould lines.
Red and blue are two common colours associated to Ottoman-turkish armies, although as uniformity it belongs to more modern times than the ones depicted by these guys, they are the main colours i choose for this unit.
A constant in this army, i tried to do something special for the Officers.

Free-hand decoration pattern on officer’s capes.
On the left figure i used a self printed decal for the pattern in the “skirt”.

28mm Warlord Games – Wallachian Voynik Infantry.

28mm Warlord Games – Wallachian Voynik Infantry.

Wallachian Voynik, Ottoman Turkish’s auxiliary troops. Wallachian is a region in the nowadays Romania, and in the time was under the Ottoman Empire control.
During the second siege of Vienna, 1683, Wallachian Corps was given task to bridging Danube.
Warlord have 2 different sets for this topic, one of troop and another for command. Appearance of these guys is clearly based in one Osprey illustration depicting these men. all the troops are armed with halberds, two variants, and come in 4 different poses, although the one opening the shield is a bit odd, seems to be asking for an arrow or shoot.
Command contains 4 figures in 4 poses, 3 officers and one drummer.

Attending to the Osprey’s illustration as well as the Warlord’s show case paint work, there was not much range choose. I used Vallejo Prussian blue as main colour. Vallejo has two references for this colour, i used the darker one as base, and then the lighter, and lighter + white, to highlight the colour. I avoided the use of blue wash in this case, so they look cleaner at the end.
For shields decoration i used “Veni Vidi Vici” transfers. They didn’t look too well, as white one are quite transparent. So i repainted a bit over transfers, not achieving a great look at the end, but in any case, better than a free-hand paint by me.

This is the only regiment of this kind in the big Ottoman army i started with this. A commission work.

28mm Red Box Games – Evil Barbarians

28mm Red Box Games – Evil Barbarians
You can find the whole range of these nice figures here.
Well, sculpture by Red Box, is top class, figures are very nice, well detailed, a pleasure to paint and collect. Of course, one feel shame when see the showcase paints.. and the own paint.. 😀 this is…
but, one can do what can do, no more.

In the batch there are several different figures. By one side there is a HelsVakt Hordesmen , six figures which a variety of weapons for your choice. At this point i must say i don’t like the kind of unions, only of the hand with the weapon.. they are very fragile.

To follow, there are three champions, Hakar the Horrible, SvartUlf the Savage and Bloody Garm not sure about this last one, because it shows a different weapon on the site. Those 3 are excellent figures.

And the last one is Belegast the Bloodthirsty.

Some family pictures to end.

28mm Warlord Games – Demi-culverin cannon

28mm Warlord Games – Demi-culverin cannon

If it was not enough artillery, a Demi-culverin always can save your day. It’s strange but this gun wasn’t in the arsenal.
Again i’m not very happy on how this ended.. i have been using a new brown paint, and i’m not sure if it works very well for this. I should have choose red or a very clear brown for this, as Warlord painted it to show. The one i most like, its the officer.. i usually don’t paint strips, but i think it looks very well. I promise to try more times.
The barrel itself, also don’t looks very good.. since i moved to the new house. i have lost several paints.. because my study is in a too hot room in summer. I planning to move the study this year, or re-condition the room.

A part of this, the gun is a nice piece, and the crew too. The big barrel on the base, came from a friend, with a nice range or resin things, Zona 72.

28mm – Warlord Games – Assault Petard

28mm – Warlord Games – Assault Petard

Well, i’m not very happy with this bunch of figures.. by one side.. it’s hard to don’t think in ECW looking at them.. so they should wear another colours.. but one of the premises was they weren’t for ECW.. so.
By the other side, i hate that kind of helmets, from the point of view of the paint.. they show the face, but it’s impossible to me decently paint them… Also i don’t specially like some of the poses.. and i did the error to put together the carriers before paint.. so was more difficult to paint them.

For sure this will not remembered as one of my best works, hope they will do they job in the battle and something will blow out.

28mm The Assault Group – Foundry – Polish Renaissance Command.

28mm The Assault Group – Foundry – Polish Renaissance Command.

This is the very end of the Polish Army.. it have been a quite long since the first unit.. till these just a few command figures. In the picture again a mix of TAG and Foundry, which you can see match very well.
The flag is the most beautiful flag from the range by Battle Flag, it have been reserved long time for this group.
Hope to start not very far with the Ottoman counterpart !!! so stay tuned.

28mm – Mantic Deadzone – Marauders, Enforcers & Asterians

Ok, Sci-fi isn’t my usual/favourite taste.. but a couple of friends have started a new adventure, called Anyma Distributions, and they will be carrying some Mantic stuff in Spain. As part of his business they running are demos for Deadzone v.2, recently released by Mantic. They run out of time, so asked me to paint some miniatures for their demos.. so here they are.

28mm – Reaper Bones & Warlord Games – KoW Kingdoms of Men – General on Winged Beast

To end for today, a work i ended a couple of months ago, but never found time to take pictures. It’s a Reaper bones dragon, over a LOTR ruins reworked, raided by a Warlord Games cavalry man from their ECW range. Most of the work here was done by airbrush, except final lights and shadows and the rider figure.
He’s part of KoW army, kingdoms of men, in fact, he is the general of the army. Hope he will perform well in the battle.
I enjoyed a lot doing this, first of all, because it’s for me and not commissioned, second because it’s another try to improve my airbrush usage, and last one because i like it, and like how dangerous can be on a KoW battle.
The Reaper dragon it’s a nice piece, cheap, very cheap for his size.

28mm – Warlord Games – Imperial Tercio

Not much to say about the warlord figures, is not the first time i paint them, but this is the large number i have painted at once. Included with the well know plastic figures there is a blister of metal armoured pike men.
I tried to paint them in dark colours, without any concession to fashion and light colours, trying to depict a “poor” Sapanish tercio for the late Thirty Years War period.

Paper flags are from Wallenstein’s Imperial Army range by Battle Flag, this time are from Flags of War, who haves a nice range for this and other periods, and a very good quality.

28mm – Gripping Beast – Antigonid Companion Command (Polemarch Successors)

It have been a while since i painted more Macedonian successors, which can be viewed here.
This time i received only three mounted figures, by Gripping Beast, depicting a Polemarch command, Antigonid, but who can be used as part of any of the numerous successors kingdoms.
I did an error and mixed here some horses which are from the Carthaginian command painted at the same time.

28mm – Gripping Beast & Crusader Miniatures – Carthaginian reinforcements.

To reinforce the Carthaginian army of my client, i was commissioned to paint a few generals plus an elephant with some extra crews for other elephants. Between the generals, the most famous one, Hannibal, is included. Those miniatures are by Gripping beast, while the elephant and the crew are by Crusader.
All figures are correct, but some of the horses are poor, very poor. Also mount the elephant, two valves of metal plus tower, all metal, was a bit of pain. Included in the elephant base there is a dead roman soldier, it’s a small resin piece, not sure which is the manufacturer.
All the elephant’s crew have been magnetized with a neodymium magnet, as well as the raider. In the base of the tower there is a metal plate, and hidden under the driver’s place, another neodymium magnet. Overall painted by brush, except the elephant who got a couple of coats by airbrush.

The September Issue II (Landsknecht).

Also this month, i was able to end some fillers for my upcoming 2 arquebus horde, so this time this is part of my own Kings of War army.
There is a good mix of brands here, including Pro-Gloria (now Warlord) , Warlord Games, Reaper and Lead Adventure.

They are 3 fillers, who take the space of 14 figures, with only 5, so i save 9 miniatures to paint (which is not a bad number talking about landsknechts). It’s the first time i try to paint landsknechts, i’m looking for a 4-5 standard combinations for the whole horde, i guess i already have found 2 i like, so only a couple more needed.

Well, the fillers are as follow:

Pro Gloria (Warlord) – Handbuchse Light Gun. 11952952_10207340402925421_5421145879703132573_o
It’s taking the space of 6 figures, so is not a bad deal, and i love this team, so i wont to paint it. I got the master gunner and though was a nice addition here, as the Pro Gloria guys are not aiming the gun at all.. seems a blind shoot. Some hard to put all together, not much space, as all need to be close to the gun, and the master gunner over it. I needed to add a stone in the back and a wooden box (Lead Adventure) to properly hold all the figures, but i think result is not bad.

Warlord Games – The Marksman.
12000911_10207340042916421_6743351065516283908_o
This is a beautiful figure i also liked to paint (The master gunner came in the same blister), but it have been some hard to emulate a landsknecht costume in this figure (around 100 years later), and the figure is not easy to paint. A lot of detail in the chest have very bad access for the brush. This filler save me 3 figures, as it’s on a 40x40mm base. Close to him is a Lead Adventure treasure chest (lovely piece).

Reaper – Anwyn, Female Bard.
12000838_10207340268362057_7707001371011697817_o
This is a lovely figure by Reaper, metal range, although she is also available in Bones range. Again the “landsknecht” costume don’t fits 100% the figure, although this time i think it looks right. I purchased this figure thinking in the previous edition of KoW, when you needed musicians and banners as options of your units. Now they are merely decorative.
The big barrel and the sac (big) are from Lead Adventure, while the small barrels and the small sac are from Warlord Games (P&S Mule team).

The whole horde will look something like this:
12002628_10207337039761344_3495112944466035811_o

A few pictures of all together, included a single Pro Gloria captain i already painted.

The September Issue (Dwarves).

Hi Folks, long time without publish anything there. I should remedy it.
I have literally thousand’s figures over the paint table. Everything started and just a few ended. Hope to start to finish some large parts soon. While this happen i already ended some single pieces, and eclectic mix, with a common factor, all are intended to play the fantasy game Kings of War, which is successfully running his second edition now.

First, i painted a few Dwarves for a friend who play with them. By one side i painted 3 females dwarves, who are part of larger unit, their captains. These figures are from the Tale of War (old) range.  They are nice sculpted, except, maybe, the faces. The pictures of the full units are not mine, are from the owner, you can follow all his work here (Spanish language)

And second i painted 2 single male figures, from the Reaper Bones range, who will act as Stone Priests in the game. I enjoyed painting the left ones, even if it’s Bones, it’s a nice figure, with and overall good presence. I already talk about Bones in the past, it’s not best material to paint, as well as it present less detail than their metal counterparts, but they are cheaper, very cheap indeed, so they always are an option to don’t waste your pocket and get what you want. Price/Quality rate make them very attractive.
Left one is code 77220: Herryk, Dwarf Cleric which also haves metal counterpart, while right ones is 77383: Barden Barrelstrap This is one will be released in October..

28mm – The Assault Group – Polish Pancerni Cavalry

28mm – The Assault Group – Polish Pancerni Cavalry

Long time without work on the Poles. The end of the army is very close, just a few command figures remain in my stash.
It have been a long work, over two years, and they needed a good end. Only better than those Pancerni could have been the Winged Hussars, but that was the first part of the army.
Any novelties used here, decoration on saddles have been done using nail’s decals, painting over them, a resource previously used. The stripped saddles are totally done by hand. Shields and pistol’s holders are decorated by hand.
All the figures used are by The Assault Group, flags and pendons by Battle-Flag.com

28mm – Gripping Beast – Carthaginian Spear Men & Numidian Cavalry

28mm – Gripping Beast – Carthaginian Spear Men & Numidian Cavalry

Not everything can be renaissance or fantasy… i also was commissioned to paint these ancient Carthaginian troops, mainly veteran spear men by Gripping Beast. I used shield transfers by Little Big Men Studios, you need to cut them in two parts, so it’s a long work. Figures are correct for their purpose. Some flash need to be removed, but nothing to be scared.
About the Numidian Cavalry i tried a darker skin colour, a total failure as you can see. I worked horses with airbrush, saving some time, although was complicated retouch them with brush. The shields also use Little Big Studios transfers. To use them in not flat shields you need some work, and result is not so good. But looking them at middle distance, they look good.
There is one extra figure who comes from a separated Carthaginian Allies pack, which i will end soon, as well as some other reinforcements for Carthage.

28mm – Mierce Miniatures – Creoda, Guthwulf

I had the pleasure to be commissioned to work this awesome and big piece by Mierce Miniatures, who haves and awesome range, although some expensive.
I worked here mainly with airbrush, almost everything.
Pictures and my work don’t make justice to this excellent piece. I only had a problem, with left rear leg.. although i tried to clean all it didn’t fit quite well.. and my work with putty to fill the gap is noticeable once painted. All the figure has a very tiny pattern (hair) which was impossible to reproduce in the putty. Anyway i’m happy with final result, quite similar to what i imagined. Another try with airbrush and i begin to feel good doing it. Most of the problems relay in have the paints in an appropriate state, enough liquid to don’t obstruct the airbrush but not too much. Achieving that all the rest is play with colours as usual done with brush. Next step begin to practice masking some parts, and to make outlines using floating masks…
Some one for sure will recognise a part from a LOTR kit in the base. All the rest is natural stuff, such stones and pine bark.

28mm – Games Workshop – Ogre Kingdoms Leadbelchers (Conversion KoW Ogre Army Standard Bearer)

I finished this single piece to ends the content of the Ogres Leadbelchers box, which contains 4 figures. In KoW 4 is a bad number for Ogres, you can rank 3 or 6.. so the remaining figure should be something different to a Boomer. I converted the figure, changing gun’s arm position, with some green stuff, cut here, cut there..
Base is made with cork fragments.
Some work is done with airbrush, as i’m trying to practice, a mixed technique airbrush/brush.
Although i don’t dislike the result i prefer the skin tone used in the Boomers. Anyway was interesting to try a different skin tone.

28mm – Games Workshop – Ogre Kingdoms Leadbelchers (KoW Boomers)

portada-Ogres-GW

I purchased these guys to reinforce my Kings of War human army, but in the forthcoming V.2 i can only carry them as allies, it haves his benefits, although this concrete unit, Boomers, is beings restructured and they will not be so brutes as they were. Anyway i enjoyed a lot painting these, i used airbrush for the ogre’s skin, applying base coat and two highlights. I need to improve such technique a lot, but i like result, it’s the first time. Anyway i don’t feel confidence enough to apply it on nothing smaller than these ogres.. so. These are my first Ogres ever, but also my first Goblins, Red Goblins, as they should be because they are Ogre’s slaves… that say KoW rules.
To my taste, these ogres depict better the Boomers description than the Mantic Ogres themselves…
Hope you like them too.
